Recovery from addiction requires more than freeing the body from drugs or alcohol one time. Sobriety requires more than just detoxification because addiction is a pervasive condition that requires long-term effort. There are many kinds of treatment options for addiction recovery, one gaining popularity is art therapy. Art therapy activities for substance abuse groups function as a therapeutic tool that compliments other means of treatment and can help those recovering from addiction by offering them a non-verbal, creative outlet to heal emotionally and spirituality. At Crosspointe Recovery, we utilize alternative therapies such as art therapy, to help our clients heal from addiction.
